Department of Instrumentation & Control Engineering

The department of Instrumentation & Control Engineering, the only one of its kind in government /aided sector was established in 1980. The department offers a full time B.Tech degree course in Instrumentation & Control Engineering with a total intake of 72, and M.Tech degree in Biomedical Engineering with a total intake of 18. This department is an approved research center of APJ Abdul Kalam Technological University. Department has been backed up by efficient, dedicated and specialized faculty and they work with dedication to keep in pace with the ever-changing control and instrumentation scenario. The department has an excellent placement record, with its alumni working all around the globe in reputed companies in coveted positions. The alumni and the experts from industry visit the department periodically and give lectures, demonstrations, and career guidance to the students. The students are also given exposure to the industrial environment through industrial visits and industrial training. It's indeed a matter of pride for the department that numerous eligible final year students are placed in prestigious MNCs every year.

Our Mission

  To impart engineering education at par with global standards to create self- motivated graduates in Instrumentation and Control Engineering, and postgraduates in biomedical engineering.
  To inculcate a passion for learning and an ability to utilize the knowledge for solving real world problems and industrial challenges.
  To be a premier centre for Instrumentation and Control Engineering studies and research with a main focus in Biomedical Engineering.
  To groom the graduates who uphold engineering ethics with a high degree of social commitment.

Our Vision

“To be a centre of excellence of international acclaim in the realm of Instrumentation and Control Engineering producing self-motivated, knowledgeable and technically competent engineers to nurture the needs of the society”
